Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain won’t play regularly in the Liverpool team this season.

The 26-year-old has so far saw the majority of his game time come in cup competitions.

His fine form in the Champions League earned “the Ox” Standard Chartered’s October player of the month and increased calls for a  starting spot in the team.

Despite this, Oxlade-Chamberlain won’t be a regular starter for Liverpool this season and here is why:

The Premier League is Liverpool’s number one priority. We simply must end the 30-year league trophy drought this season.

Jurgen Klopp and co have made a near perfect start and look like making it happen. The Reds have picked up 11 wins from 12 games and amassed an eight-point lead at the top of the table.

The Champions League winning midfield trio of Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Gini Wijnaldum have helped the Reds earn such an incredible early lead.

 

Despite his impressive form Oxlade-Chamberlain won’t dislodge any of Klopp’s preferred midfield three.

The 52-year-old German boss is loyal to his players and barring injury won’t making changes.

During the Premier League Oxlade-Chamberlain will have to make do with sitting on the bench.

However, he could still get plenty of game time this season. The Reds are still battling on all four fronts and will need players like the England international to make it possible.

The Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup provide the former Arsenal man with ample game time. He can continue his rehab and earn a starting spot in the side next year.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain won’t play regularly this season but he still has a big role in this Liverpool team.
